Builders is great for true architecture fans or buying a coffee table book as a gift (or to make yourself look cool). They have a pretty good selection of architecture, design and planning books. Also magazines if you are so inclined. One thing that impresses me is their willingness to carry foreign books. Granted the majority of people who buy these are just going to be looking at pictures, but still. If you need something to give you ideas for your remodeling project, this is the place.

Builders Booksource might sound like a place where you would go to buy books about construction or carpentry, but it's so much more than that. They have a neat range of books about design, architecture, landscape, art, history, cities, travel, and many other topics. There's something for just about everybody here, so don't be intimidated by the name. They also have some cute cards and gifts and a nice little selection of magazines. If you go at the right time, you can find a comfy chair and sit down to read for a little while. They have a nice e-mail list that you can subscribe to and get announcements of events and discounts on occasion. There's also a frequent buyer deal, but it seems like you have to buy a lot to qualify. Employees are friendly and knowledgeable. Overall a very pleasant store.

One of the most valuable stores on Fourth Street - colorful, inviting and packed with goodies and information. In addition to thousands of books, they rent videos, have computers set up with CAD and estimating programs to try out plus they offer free educational events and much more.
